I have something to confess, but it shouldn’t come as a surprise – I’m not a very good DBA.
… but I’m not supposed to be… I’m a developer! Sure, I can discuss configuration options and architecture, but don’t ask me to install anything.
This is why I need to say “THANK YOU!” to the Oracle Technology Network for their Pre-Built Developer VMs. By providing a Virtual Machine, that runs on VirtualBox (free), pre-configured with the latest and greatest technology, I can work, learn, and play freely. It’s an incredible benefit that I don’t take for granted.
